Taking to Twitter, the Om Shanti Om actor noted, “making people smile and entertaining them is our business,” adding that it should be taken personally.

“Thanks to all who gave Pathaan their love and all who worked on the film and proved ke mehnat lagan aur bharosa abhi zinda hai (hard work, dedication and trust are still alive). Jai Hind,” he added.

As a director, I couldn’t be prouder to have made a film that is bringing joy to so many people globally.”
